Samsung's new budget phone brings 6,000mAh battery, quad cameras for ~$200
- Samsung has announced a new budget smartphone for India.
- The Galaxy M32 packs a MediaTek SoC with a 64MP main camera and a 90Hz display.
- It goes on sale in India from June 28.
There’s no shortage of budget Samsung smartphones in India, but the country is about to welcome yet another model. This time, Samsung is launching the Galaxy M32 (h/t XDA-Developers), the latest device in the company’s affordable series.
The Galaxy M32 takes a few styling cues from the Galaxy F62. It packs a pinstripe design on its back and will be available in Black and Light Blue colorways. Internally, however, it seems almost identical to the Galaxy M31 it replaces.
The Samsung Galaxy M32 features a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate. It’s also covered in Gorilla Glass 5 and packs 800 nits of maximum brightness. Internally, the Galaxy M32 houses a MediaTek Helio G80 taking the Exynos 9611’s place on the Galaxy M31. The new model also packs up to 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. There’s also a microSD card slot for expanding the latter too. A 6,000mAh battery provides power to the device, while a 15W charger is provided.

As for its imaging chops, the Galaxy M32 features four rear snappers headlined by a 64MP primary camera. There’s an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP depth sensor, and 2MP macro snapper, too. A 20MP selfie snapper is housed in a notch.
Other niceties include a 3.5mm headphone jack, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and Android 11 with One UI 3.1 on top.
Samsung Galaxy M32 price and availability
The Samsung Galaxy M32 will be available in India from June 28. As for the price, Samsung isn’t deviating from the Galaxy M31’s price too much. The base 4GB/64GB model will be priced at Rs 14,999 (~$202), while the 6GB/128GB will be a Rs 16,999 (~$229) investment. The phone will be available through Samsung India, Amazon India, and other local retailers.
That price puts the Galaxy M32 in a fight with the POCO X3, Redmi Note 9 Max, and the other sub-Rs 20,000 smartphones in India.
